A coat of arms or family crest has long been a symbol of a family's
identity and values.
Originally used to identify warriors dressed in armor, each knight chose symbols and colors to
represent his family or clan.
These family crests or coats of arms have been passed down through generations.
A simple identification of who they where and what they stood for!!

Sometimes traditions are unique only to your family.
My Grandpa Joe passed away before most of his grandchildren were born. Grandma Dorothy passed away before most of her grandchildren were old enough to get be married. In all the pictures I have ever seen, Grandpa wore two outfits, overalls for working on the farm and a suit for church. Grandma never went outside to work without a large bonnet and apron. As a way to remember those who came before us, weddings in my family involve the bride and groom dancing in outfits that our grandparents wore.
What is with the overalls?
